8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

I finally got my EAD card approved after 4 long months. Does anyone know how long it takes for the card to arrive?

I got the approval letter exactly two weeks ago and still nothing...

I thought it would take only a few days ugh

 

Thanks in advance for your help!

I’m in the same situation.

I got the notice in the mail last week,but no updates about the card yet.

I called the uscis yesterday and I was told that it can take some time, even though there is nothing wrong with my case. The case has been sent to the production department  but hasn’t been produced yet.

it’s so annoying!

I called 8003755283 and asked to speak with a tier 2.

Hopefully we will get our cards soon!

 

Did yours get any online update? My case results received still.

Thank you for the info!

Yeah my online status is updated to "your card is being produced". But it said that on April 3rd and now it updated the date to April 9th, but it's still saying the same thing. Shouldn't take a week to produce a damn card
